3 possibilities during a share round:

1- Sell then buy
2- Start a new company from scratch
3- Pass

As I see it, you cannot sell any share during the action no.2
It means that you have to be prepared to have a raise of the auction and pay only with cash. In the case that you do not have enough cash, you would have to sell on a previous action.

Am I right?

Yes, you are correct...you essentially have these options from which to select one action...

Optionally sell shares, then optionally buy one certificate (if it is phase 6H or later you may start an available 10-share company by purchasing the president's certificate).

Optionally start an auction for the next 5-share company (as long as there are any left to start - unstarted 5-share companies are removed from the game at phase 8H).

Pass.

Players go into a Share Round with a certain amount of cash available. If Player A were able to sell shares and then immediately auction a company, the likelihood is that only they would be competitive in the auction. Forcing a round of selling first allows all players to be competitive. That's the reasoning behind the rule.
